A costton bud, Q-Tip, slightly moistened, will get the clinging dust off a model. You will use a boat load of them. I have some tiny versions of a cotton bud sold as a paint applicator which will get around the base of struts and wires. A little bit of cotton wrapped around the end of a toothpick will do as well and is much cheaper. I still have a shelf or so worth of models to clean.

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Some very nice Strutters here!

But Bud, you nailed it! This bird looks so real :o Is it 1/48?

Cheers,

Thanks! I remember I had to glue the Toko decals on with clear gloss, or they kept falling off- as if someone forgot the glue... ;) At least they didn't shatter, like those of the Gotha. (the shattering on contact with water seems to have been an issue with the very flat decals, and only those printed in black, apparently...

I'll try the q-tip-tip! :)
